Maybe you or someone you know has some childhood memories seared into your soul with the hot iron of adrenaline and fear. For five-year-old Greg Stier, it was the memory of his ma beating his stepdad with a baseball bat. Greg grew up in a family of bodybuilding, tobacco-chewing, fist-fighting, violent thugs. He never met his dad, his mom got pregnant in a one-night stand. He left town, she wanted to abort Greg. But Jesus saved Greg for so much more! Greg’s new book, Unlikely Fighter is the staggering story of how Jesus changes everything.
Greg shares how “Yankee” shared the gospel on a dare with the most violent of Greg’s uncles, a guy who once choked 2 police unconscious at the same time. We hear about Greg’s Christmas surprise that was like a searing knife to his soul. Also, flipping off the devil; the wound of shame that was so deep in his mom’s soul; his brother Doug’s transformation in a mental institution; the ceaseless prayers of his grandmother for her violent children. Finally, how Dare 2 Share, led by Greg, is transforming the first post Christian generation in America, Gen Z. Please share this!
